EY Azerbaijan sponsors British Business Group (BBG) monthly meeting and presented the 3rd Robin Bennett award for a significant contribution to Azerbaijan-UK business relations. The event was held at the Four Seasons Hotel Baku on Wednesday, 25 May 2016.

"Robin did a lot to promote British business in Azerbaijan. He was a founding member of the BBG and the first Chairman of the group. We set up this award in honor of Robin and to recognize individuals who make a significant contribution to Azerbaijani-UK relations. The nominations are made by BBG members and the BBG Committee selects the winner," Turgay Teymurov, EY Baku Partner and a member of the BBG Committee, told EY.

John Patterson OBE, the winner of the first award in May 2014, shared his thoughts: "I was delighted in my capacity as Chairman of the British Business Group to present the Robin Bennett Award for 2016 to Howard Lyn of Rapid Solutions. His contribution to Azerbaijani-British relations has been fantastic, not just within his company but also from his activities within the Anglo-Azerbaijani Society, the European Azerbaijan Society, as well as the British Business Group."

About BBG

The British Business Group has been operating in Azerbaijan for 20 years. It provides a vehicle through which new business people can meet other members of the professional community who are familiar with the workings of Azerbaijan, for information and advice on how business is carried out in the country. It's a chance for valuable networking, and also for companies to present themselves and raise their profile.

The group does this by holding monthly meetings, usually on the last Wednesday of each month. Sometimes it is attended by a visiting UK government minister or similar guest.
